Persuing my goal to challenge myself more in 2015, I crocheted a square that was a bit more than a granny square. It has a different centre which I found quite challenging. I still have a lot to learn about crochet and I tend to do this a bit like a rabbit caught in the headlights. I just sit and fixate on my work until it is done. Then I can start breathing again!
I rarely give up on something and I definitely couldn't give up on this as it was already promised to SIBOL (Sunshine International Blankets of Love) for the 1000th sunshine blanket. Various SIBOL regulars have contributed one square each and Sue, SIBOL's founder, will sew them together to make a very special blanket. These blankets go to residents of care homes in the UK.
SIBOL usually collects completed blankets and shawls. Individual squares are no longer collected. But Tinka, the author of the pattern, is happy to receive squares which she then makes into blankets for people being treated for cancer. There is more information about her work here on Ravelry. You will need to log in to Ravelry to see the complete information.
The pattern is here on Ravelry. It is no longer a free pattern, though I was lucky enough to be sent it free just after it was published.
